Comments: PDC Brands, which is owned by affiliates of CVC and Leonard Green & Partners and its management, has named Alex Tosolini as its new chief executive officer. Prior to taking on the role in February, he had been senior vice president of new business development at the Kroger Company. He replaces James Stammer, who had been CEO and served on the board directors for 15 years.
Last Fall, PDC led the $4 million Series A funding round for Love Wellness, a brand that targets feminine health issues selling a range of products from OTC suppositories to intimate cleansers to supplements to skin care.
“I couldn’t be more excited to welcome PDC as a strategic partner for Love Wellness as we continue to define and change the personal care category for women’s health, Love Wellness Founder Lauren Bosworth said when the funding was announced. The capital was designed to help Love Wellness invest in marketing and expand its staff and retail footprint.
